Ex-Barrow County pastor, son charged in church arson

WINDER, Ga. (AP) - A former Barrow County pastor and his son
have been charged with arson for setting fire to a church three
years ago.

Barrow County sheriff's deputies arrested 49-year-old Quincy
Arnold of Lawrenceville Tuesday. Investigators said he served as
pastor of the New Life Deliverance Church near Winder.

The blaze gutted the church on Dec. 7, 2005. State and federal
investigators said gasoline was used to ignite the fire.

Arnold's 24-year-old son, Maurice Arnold of Dacula, was arrested
in January.

The two men also face conspiracy to commit a crime, vandalism of
a place of worship and insurance fraud.

Quincy Arnold was released on $50,000 bond. His son is out of
jail on $30,000 bond.
